  • wheel weights or pure lead

    Hi all
    Looking at casting some 12 gauge slugs with a Lyman mould
    and have been told to use pure lead as wheel weights are to hard on the barrel
    What are your opinions on this
    Thanks A-Bolt

    Will not make any difference to the barrel. But wheel weights will be harder on game.

      I would use pure lead, only because they are coming out slow, so BHN 5 should give you some expansion.

      You could still use wheel weights, it wont be an issue.

    A 12ga slug is in the form of a hollow based minnie and using anything other than pure lead will prevent the skirt of the base from expanding to fill the bore and poor accuracy will result!
    Hold still varmint, whilst I plugs ya!
